Just Beginning

Ages: 6-months to 36-months

The Just Beginning Project is a relationship based intervention consisting of instructional sessions and parent-child visits focusing on communication and socio-emotional enhancing techniques. Incarcerated teen parents are rarely given the opportunity to participate in hands-on parent training programs, despite the potential for reduced recidivism for the parent and socio-emotional benefits for their child. The findings of this study could have important implications for how to create and implement successful interventions for this unique population.
